[opens very soft and slow, to the tune of mona/she’s the one]I got a date with the preacher’s daughterShe give me life she bring me water.Every sunday I watch her workPretty little (siff? ) in a pretty little churchDaddy gives her nod she takes collectionDaddy gives her nod she kneels by her side.Well I’d sell my soul for just one touchThe lord would too if he loved her half as much.Well I got a date with the preacher’s daughter.Her daddy say that the boy’s no goodJust want to raise some (coons? ) out through the back woodsWell baby better believe what your daddy sayJust wanna ramrod baby my life away.It’s a long walk to heaven and a road filled with sinAnd they better open up the freeway to let me in.’cuz I got a date with the preacher’s daughterWell now I don’t care what the preacher sayHaaaaayyyy[identical to haaaaayyyy, mona]Well now I don’t care what the preacher doHaaaaayyyyI don’t care what the preacher likeHaaaaayyyyI don’t care what the preacher thinkHaaaaayyyyLeads me to water but won’t let me drink.He leads me to water but won’t let me drink.(big man)[maracas start, music picks up, bruce starts yelling]And now it’s (whole little world? ) on saturday nightTwo boys fighting in a halo of lightCar door flung open and a radio loudAnd everybody shouting and running around.Two guys bloody and one I don’t knowAnd all little girls shouting go billy goGo billy go.Well just as I got the preacher’s daughter ready for a lightAnd (missed a vh fire? ) and something ain’t right.And like a she-devil howlin’ from the gates of hellGoddam here come the preacher in his coupe devilleBurnin’ up the backroad kicking in the dirtAnd oh baby preacher thinks he is churchWell now your lips they shine in the willow mistAnd I swear I’d take you down (young croft? ) for just one kissI got a date with the preacher’s daughterI got a date with the preacher’s daughterAnd it’s haaaaayyyyooooI got a date with the preacher’s daughterHmmmmm...
